Leg bands

Hi! I just wanna ask, will I be able to identify my 4 sun conures when they get older with their yellow feathers even if I don’t put leg bands on them? I’ve read on some of the topics here about leg bands that it’s kinda unsafe to have them on. Right now, with their green feathers and few yellow feathers popping out, it’s no problem to know who’s who. But I’m kinda worried when they get all their yellow feathers that I might not be able to identify them.

Re: Leg bands

Hi there! SO split legbands, put on when parrots get older, like your 4, have been problematic, as things can get wedged into the split. My own Amazon had that happen and I had the band removed ( and saved!). Continuous bands, put on when the parrot is a chick, and not usually a problem unless the bird start to get in the habit of picking at it. Visually your just going to have to learn to recognize each bird, once they get their adult plumage. You could of course have different color bands put on them ( I think - would need to be aluminum anodized with different colors, but not sure these are offered like that).

Re: Leg bands

You will always! be able to tell them apart.

Every bird has their own personality, calls etc. even if they were identical clones.

I wouldn't sweat it a bit.

Re: Leg bands

I have 2 suns, female, neither banded - I think you’ll be fine. I can tell mine apart, they do have slightly different coloration and very different personalities and behaviors!

Re: Leg bands

You'll be able to tell. One will scream, one will scream louder, one will scream louder than that, and one will shatter wine glasses at 20 paces. LOL.
